We hope to come back again! - Wolfert Dalton School, The Netherlands

Every year we come to Delhi with a group of about 12 volunteers. We have been doing this for almost 6 years now, and we think it is an excellent addition to our school program.
We aim to combine the cultural and volunteering aspect of the journey.

This year, we have worked at 2 schools in the slum areas, teaching the children English and Maths, and supporting them with educational materials as well as with other necessary items like water coolers, fans, carpets, audio system and wall paintings.

Our students enjoyed working with the children - the exchange of affection, helping them to learn. They were surprised at how quickly they could bond with the children and amazed at how thankful the slum kids are with the small things. Our students from the Netherlands realized that their lives are so different from that of the people here in India and that they take things for granted. They loved painting the walls and see the classrooms improve. They created a more interactive classroom environment.

The cultural highlights were visiting old Delhi, the Lodhi Gardens, Jantar Mantar, and of course, shopping at the markets. And not to for the Akshardham Temple.

They regretted that they had to leave so soon, and we hope to come back next year.
